Whether you’ve wanted to become a pilot your entire life or have just recently found the urge, EAA can help you get started. We’ll give you an overview of the opportunities available to you as a Private, Sport, or Ultralight pilot, and then help you find the tools and the training you need to make your dream a reality. Do you think you’re interested, but you’ve never been up in a small airplane and would like to try it out first? We can make that happen, too - free of charge!
There are three basic pathways to becoming a pilot here in the U.S.: You can become a full-blown Private Pilot, you can get there a bit faster and cheaper by becoming a Sport Pilot, or you can fly on your own as an Ultralight Pilot.
Learning to fly will transform your life. It immerses you in new sensations and allows you to conquer exciting challenges. It changes how you perceive yourself and what you know you can accomplish. Become a pilot and transform yourself.
